Springvale Care Home in Lennoxtown

Springvale Care Home is based in Lennoxtown; a town in East Dunbartonshire, situated at the foot of the Campsie Fells. With a current population of around 4,000, this charming town is a frequent spot for those who are keen on fishing, history and escaping to nature from time to time. The local town features a selection of local shops, restaurants, bars and cafés that our residents love to visit with their family and friends, as well as plenty of good transport links that are regular and ready to take you wherever you need to go. 

Our residents take great pleasure in exploring the local area, and with Springvale Care Home being situated amongst beautiful surroundings, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. There are plenty of nearby attractions that make for perfect family-friendly days out, and whether our residents choose to visit them with their family and friends on their own time, or they’d rather attend alongside their fellow Springvale friends and Activity Coordinators, they’re never short on things to do. 

We provide many opportunities for our residents to get out and about in and around the local community, or beautiful countryside. This is so that they can get a true sense of their Residential Care Home in Lennoxtown and how they shouldn’t be afraid of interacting with the community. Our social calendar is constantly jam-packed with fascinating and entertaining outings for residents to enjoy, ranging from trips to the local markets and shops to much larger activities such as garden centre trips and theatre visits.

Springvale Care Home is in a very convenient location in Lennoxtown, so our residents and their visiting friends and family can get everything they need from our care home and the town that surrounds them. In terms of activities and off-site adventures, we have a lot to offer, from historical visits to galleries and museums to a variety of stores and cafes all within a short distance.

What’s in the Area Around Springvale Care Home?

A huge draw to the Lennoxtown area is, of course, Lennox Castle and the history behind it. David Hamilton was commissioned by John Lennox Kincaid, the leader of the local Clan Kincaid, to design and build Lennox Castle between 1837 and 1841. Lennox Castle was then utilised as a maternity and mental hospital when it was sold in 1927 until 2002 when it was destroyed by fire. Part of the mediaeval castle grounds now houses Celtic Football Club’s modern training facility, which is once again, a very big draw for many of our more sport-focused residents.

The Campsie High Kirk, a gothic-style structure designed by Glasgow architect (once again) David Hamilton and completed in 1828, was regrettably destroyed by fire in the 1980s and today stands in ruins. A Schoenstatt retreat centre has also been established in Lennoxtown, which seems to be another huge draw for tourists, and is fantastic to visit if you’re not feeling quite as you should. Whitefield Pond, located directly below the Campsie Fells, is a famous fishing area that many keen fishermen and women flock from all across the UK to visit.

Glasgow city centre is only 30 minutes away from Springvale Care Home via car, so if our residents would like to undergo a little retail therapy or grab a bite to eat with their nearest and dearest amongst the dazzling city lights, then they are more than welcome to do so. Of course, the city centre can also be reached via various regular public transport links if that’s how our residents would prefer to travel. Glasgow Fort Shopping Centre is a Springvale favourite, both amongst residents, their friends and families, and our friendly teams.

There are plenty of events that happen all around the Springvale Care Home area, what with Lennoxtown being connected to a number of larger, busier cities. Of course, if you’re looking for a plethora of events and activities to attend, we recommend heading into Glasgow City Centre first and foremost. However, in the smaller surrounding villages and towns such as Bishopbriggs and Strathblane, there are also lots of things to see and do that many often miss out on.
